Recommended clinics for breast enhancement

84 posts in this topic

 

Presume you meant 'look away from Mang' as a recent Spiegel article revealed some quite dodgy stuff going on at his clinic. Promising patients he would perform their op himself, then handing it over to a deputy; falsification of patients' files; threatening patients with legal action if they complained; accusing them of being 'psychopaths' for complaining and seeking second opinions.

 

Sounds like some bad stuff. Just for clarification, the guy runs clinics all across Germany so I doubt he actually does much himself at all these days.

My doctor (Oberarzt at my recent two month stint in hospital) that performed/was in charge of the procedures, was sometimes there to watch and assist the other surgeon.

Everyone who knows how many patients are in a Hospital/clinic should not always think they will get the Chefarzt treatment. More often then not they will just check and or stay in the background and sign off.

 

Do your homework when looking for a clinic is all I can repeat.

I will withdraw Mang as a suggestion without knowing any details. I saw a lot of miserable blaming and bitching going on at the hospital by patients and most was just that, they were miserable and the doc was the easiest target.

 

Spiegel often talks to miserable people so I hear...

 

edit:@OP heres a link to dgpraec. Should find a doctor/clinic in your region.

True enough - not good to promise patients to their face that he would do the op himself and then push off, though. And falsifying files is well dodgy.

Agree though that miserable people make for more interesting articles.

Well, it sounds as if she's determined. Good luck, I say, as long as your motivation is your own then I am sure you will get a favourable outcome.

 

Sarabyrd - the brain is the largest sexual organ. If she feels sexier, that will probably overcome any issues with reduced sensitivity (which, admittedly anecdotally, seem minor and temporary).

after two children (and I was always small anyway) I literally have no boobs ... at all. I feel like my body shape is stuck at 12 years old and I dont feel it matches to the woman I feel like. thats all.

For me, that's verging on re-constructive work.

This anecdote is going to play up to a lot of stereotypes, but what the heck: my old beauty therapist in Brentwood, Essex had a boob job.

Did she get huge Amy Childs style knockers? Nope.

She was lop-sided since developing, so had her kids and then got it done. You'd have never have picked them as having been helped. Brilliant work.

Hope newme gets some great recommendations via PM and good luck! Getting my teeth "fixed" was one of the best things I ever did, so I can completely understand why someone else would go this route.

And the comments about sensual touch? newme may well not enjoy having her current breasts touched at all right now, so there's nothing lost.

 

My dermatologist's office works with Dr Daniel Müller at Rechts der Isar, who does cosmetic stuff alongside his plastic/re-constructive work (this would be my big tip for anyone considering something like this - "cosmetic" work is a fuzzy work area, "plastic" means much more study, qualifications and controls). I've been really happy with the dermatology treatments, so the referral might be worth a look.

The route the OP is taking here is great by asking who has had good personal experience.

 

I beg to differ. It is NOT like going to the hairdresssers. And that is what I really dislike about cosmetic surgery - people are led to believe it is.

 

There is no explicit licence doctors need to perform these procedures.

 

You said it.

 

It is not for featherlight to decide if a boobjob is appropriate or not...

 

What makes you think I am DECIDING?? I am expressing an opinion - and warning.

 

and by the way, calling a pornstar a bimbo with no brain is just impolite.#

 

I said my SIL was NEITHER a bimbo with no brain NOR a wannabe pornstar. English comprehension??

 

Could not let these inaccuracies pass.

If you had asked me last week I would have said do it if it makes you feel better about yourself. But then I saw a post op photo last thursday which makes you think how much do you really want this.....?

 

Woman in question is a close friend of my colleage (hence photo)and she went under the knife for a standard augmentation. Surgeon was working on the second breast when her lungs collapsed - a reaction to the anaesthetic they reckon. Bear in mind this happened in a private clinic not a hospital. They gave an emergency injection into her arm but missed the vein and again some horrible reaction. The clinic then gave up and whisked her to the hospital where they just managed to save her life. Her arm now has stitches from wrist to armpit, they did the second boob subsequently in the hospital under their supervision. Just saying....!

 

PS - As a bloke I have to say concur with SaraByrd - I like the post baby look - its real - and I'm not sure I would get a kick out of fondling a bag of silicon gel; plus it takes the pressure off getting my expanding waistline vacuumed out!

@Jimmyb - exactly. Don't get that going to the hairdressers, hopefully not anyway.

think we all get lumps and bumps as we get older, men as well as women.

I don't mind imperfections :) think they make us all a little more interesting.

So has the OP heard that there are 30,000 women in France who may have to have their silicon boob implants removed owing to a fear of a link with cancer? This is going to be really interesting as there is the issue of who will be paying for what (removal is one thing, reconstruction another).

 

There is going to be a whole discussion now about whether or not there is a direct link with cancer. However, if there is only one proven case of there being a link with cancer so far (as has been cited) does anyone think that they would be recommending 30,000 women go under the knife again? I suspect if the figures were true they would just keep quiet. There must be more to it. Apparently in England the number of women with PIP implants is more like 40,000. And the British version so far is that there is no need for worry. Well they certainly would say that, wouldn't they?

Well, the article you linked cites 8 cases of cancer in women with the implants:

 

 

More than 1,000 of the implants have ruptured, according to the French health and safety agency AFSSAPS, and eight women with the implants have developed cancer.

I think all the hand-wringing over who is going to pay for this is totally silly. The company manufactured an unsafe product. Women who wish to have it removed from their bodies should have their expenses paid by the implant manufacturer. It's known as a "recall," and it's done all the time on faulty products.

 

Edit: and have new ones implanted if they wish, also at the expense of the company at fault. Why is there even a question that the French health care system would have to absorb any costs?

lively discussion. just to assure you - my husband has not pressured me at all, that was a presumption on featherlight's part. and its not about trading my boobs in for bouncy, silicone, dome-like ones either. after two children (and I was always small anyway) I literally have no boobs ... at all. I feel like my body shape is stuck at 12 years old and I dont feel it matches to the woman I feel like. thats all.

 

Women who usually get caught up with the idea of getting boob enchancements or boob augmentation are in fact influenced by their husbands or boyfriends. If you really felt all feminine and good about yourself you wouldn't feel the need to get a breast enhancement. A boob job won't fix your insecurities. Just saying.

Not to mention that a controlling asshole who encourages his wife/girlfriend to get implants is also asshole enough to complain afterwards that they don't "feel natural." Just saying. I had a girlfriend whose husband actually said that to her.

@Cinzia, that happened to two friends of mine.

One had really big breasts and he told her they were too much and she should get them reduced.

So she did do that, and then he told her he does not want to touch them.

What happened in the end? They got divorced.

The second girl also got a breast reduction and while she was in stiches and in pain, taking medicine,

her husband was banging their marriage counselor.

Those two also got divorced.

I read that report in the BBC, which also stated that 0,000 women in the UK are at risk.

 

What I don't understand, as a man... OK, as me, is why women want to alter what they have as natural in the first place. Where does the thought/pressure come from that what you have isn't good enough, and if the guy doesn't think what you have isn't good enough, isn't it his problem rather than yours anyway? Somebody help me to understand why anybody would want to have sacks of silicon inserted into their bodies, because I can't work it out at all.

There's nothing pleasant about this picture of the breast implant that ruptured.

 

I have a friend who had breast implants that became infected. She had to travel back to the States to have multiple surgeries to remove the implant and replace it. She would ask me to help her change her dressings. I can't tell you how grossed out I was about seeing her disfigurement from a procedure she was expecting to enhance her.

 

I also know women who bought breast enhancement surgery with the combat zone pay their husbands earned when they went to war. My thoughts about breast enhancement are if you were meant to have larger breast you would have them, be satisfied with what you have.

 

If you're considering breast enhancement surgery to please your man, this is the wrong reason. If you're considering breast enhancement surgery to please yourself, check your head.

 

Breast Implants info.org

 

 

A study by FDA scientists found that women with leaking silicone gel implants were more likely to develop fibromyalgia and several other painful diseases than women with implants that were not leaking. This study is described in more detail at .

I'm with Sin. Although I make silly jokes about boobs I think it is crazy to even consider having any cosmetic surgery - mind you I am even against tattoos. I think bodies ought to be as nature intended.

 

I really think lots more people ought to go do FKK or lie in a sauna, not for any iniquitous purposes, just to see what other natural naked bodies look like. If they did they'd realise how much media imagery destroys us, and how we have only one body and have to take care of it with all its imperfections (of which I have many).

 

(Can't wait to hit my local sauna tomorrow to detox b4 christmas!)

They are already arguing that only one of those 8 can be proven to be a direct cause of the implant. The other 7 may or may not have been caused by the implant. This is going to be one long argument.

 

I understand that the manufacturer has gone bust so someone else has to pick up the tab.

Can you explain this? Please...

 

From what I read... The OP feels all feminine and good, but would simply like a pair of Tits..

 

Its the only time I would actually agree to Some sort of assistance.
